Starting new job but no childcare in hopes of saving for a new future

Thursday, August 01, 2013


I wrote a blog a couple weeks ago about looking for a new job because I was READY to work, earn some money, help Josh and get Joey in childcare because he gets so bored and is fussy all day at home. Well, I have a new temp job doing sales with Staples from home.
My daycare prospect flaked out on me which is probably well because my son did not like her anyway.

I've decided to save my money up and I've decided to begin courses for my license in Real Estate this coming September. I want a career that's more on my terms and I think I can get that in Real Estate. I've already gotten the support of a company and a friend who sells in Savannah. She sold us our house. I just need to come up with $450 for class sign up. Whew! It never ends. I hope that I can raise the money in time. I really want to find something to do with my life. I'm a mom but sometimes not a good one. It's a thankless job but I want to have a career too. Sooooo fingers crossed.

I've still been here reading blogs. Not much to write until lately. I just got back from Daytona. Vacationing with my family is exhausting. My son wants to run off everywhere and he would absolutely scream when we got back to the hotel room. I used to love vacationing with my parents. We all shared a space but now I find that our quarters are too cramped and I need more privacy. We took what we could get this year but I'm ready for my husband and child to have our own space and I hope we can afford our own room next year. My parents can be so bossy and fussy. Josh gets annoyed with them and my sister and I do too. Its just past time for us to spread out a bit.

Daytona was fun. They have a great flea and farmers market. The beaches are beautiful! The only thing that disappoints me is the food. I've yet to be blown away by anything there food wise. In fact our cuisines have been less than mediocre.

No weight loss updates. I've been tired a lot again lately. All I want to do is sleep sometimes but then again I feel like its because I sit still but then again, I sit still because I'm tired.

I'm glad to read everyone's doing well, losing weight and such. Maybe I too will lose weight again someday.

    i think being in real estate would be interesting. The paperwork is often not fun but I like looking at other people's houses. LOL.

    I used to enjoy Daytona - mainly because it's one of the few places we could drive on the beach but the food isn't great. It's much better on the Gulf Coast or in Miami.

    We went on vacation with my mom and grandma and insisted on having our own room. 3 people, one being a child, in a room is enough.
